Comedian Katt Williams was the victim of a burglary hoax after falling out with a fellow house guest at his producer pal BARRY HANKERSON's home, his lawyer has proclaimed.
The funnyman was arrested on charges of burglary and criminal trespassing in Georgia early on Monday (09Nov09), and he was booked into Coweta County Jail and was ordered to appear before a judge hours later.
But the star's lawyer, William Briggs, claims his client was in Georgia filming a movie and had "full permission" to stay at Hankerson's property, where he has been living since last month (Oct09), reports TMZ.com.
According to Briggs, Williams was taken into custody after a dispute with one of Hankerson's employees turned nasty and they called the cops to report a false crime.
As WENN went to press, further details about Williams' bail hearing on Monday afternoon had yet to be revealed.
